The Antarctic Library of the late Raymond J Adie, (1925-2006), the scientist and explorer who dedicated his life to Antarctica, will be auctioned at Cheffins Auctioneers in Cambridge on Thursday 26th October. The library includes a collection of fine art and prints (few of which deal directly with the Antarctic per se, but do capture Adie’s interest in travel and exploration), some maps and many rare and collectable books. The complete catalogue is available here. And a nicely written article discussing the sale and a bit about Raymond Adie’s life can be found in this article at the Cambridge Evening News.
